28 Days of Christmas: Frank Turner & Jon Snodgrass - "Happy New Year" + "Last Christmas"
This cut is on Frank Turner's recently released The Third Three Years compilation (which I joyfully inhaled this past weekend). This duet about the holidays between a Brit and an American is a delight. "Thin Lizzy on the stereo/ No fights no tears." Amen to that, brothers.
And because I can't resist a great "Last Christmas" cover, here's Turner doing this tune simple, lovely acoustic justice. The most beautiful thing about this track is that you can hear people in the crowd laughing mere seconds before everyone is singing along. Because you know you love this song! QUIT LYING TO YOURSELF YOU KNOW YOU LOVE IT DAMNIT!
